The office of Rick Friedrichs, DDS and Associates uses micro-dentistry treatments to provide early dental care for dental problems such as decay. Micro-dentistry means finding tiny fissures and decay as early as possible, in order to preserve the natural structure of your teeth. We invite you to contact our office at 281-205-4717 for more information on micro-dentistry, and to make your appointment with Dr. Friedrichs and Dr. Abraham.
Micro-dentistry is a new, innovative way to treat tooth decay. The goal of micro-dentistry is to remove as little of your natural tooth structure as possible, while also removing all the decay found in your teeth. Through the use of new bonding techniques, magnification, fiber-optic lights, composite (tooth-colored) filling materials, and decay-indicating dyes, tooth decay can be quickly and conservatively removed from your teeth. When necessary, our dentists use filling materials to restore your damaged teeth to their original structure and beauty. Dental fillings are the smallest possible restoration, and are both long lasting and esthetically pleasing.
More than 90% of the time, we do not need to numb your mouth for micro-dentistry procedures, including air abrasion treatments. With this reduced need for anesthetic, we can complete more work in a shorter amount of time, as we can work in multiple areas of your mouth during your appointment.
